Michigan Notable Books: author interviews

Every year, the Library of Michigan selects up to twenty of the most notable books, either written by a Michigan resident or about Michigan or the Great Lakes. Each selected title speaks to our state’s rich cultural, historical, and literary heritage and proves without a doubt that some of the greatest stories are found in the Great Lakes State. This year, the statewide tour of notable authors has gone online, with a series of recorded interviews. For more information about Michigan Notable Books, click here.  You can also search our catalog for a listing of Michigan Notables available in our collection.

Zoom login information will be announced once a date has been finalized.
